Turquoise December's Birthstone


Sorry I'm so late posting this month. Between Christmas and three December birthdays I just couldn't get it done.  So having said that let's talk about Turquoise. The name means Turkish Stone, because it came to Europe by way of Turkey. The ancient Egyptians often used turquoise in their jewelry designs, and it is thought to be a stone of wisdom and spiritual journeys.

I hope you all had very Happy Holidays and I wish good things for you in the new year.
